For the successful integration of data-driven methods in existing processes, it is first necessary to know these methods and their fields of application, potentials, and individual limits. This requires an easily accessible knowledge base. Depending on possible use cases and available data, this knowledge base should suggest methods that can lead to an optimization of the overall product development process. To prevent the knowledge base from being a rigid catalogue, it is essential to link it to the existing methods of the product development process. This contribution presents an approach based on the semantic web application Semantic MediaWiki, that ensures a connected representation of method knowledge and at the same time enables a link with use cases in the product development process.
